A London man has been jailed after ramming a police car with his Range Rover and starting a pursuit through Surrey – before smashing into a property.

Mohamed Chand, 23, was jailed for a total of 10 months and disqualified from driving for 19 months and 19 days following the incident on June 27.

Shocking dashcam and doorbell camera footage shows Chand, behind the wheel of a stolen blue Range Rover, taking off from police before crashing into a garden fence at high speed.

The owner of the Range Rover had heard his car start on his driveway in Guildford at around 4.40am – prompting police to begin a frantic search in the area to locate it.

The car was eventually located on Jacob’s Well Road, but when an officer parked their police car in front of the vehicle to prevent it escaping, Chand rammed it and took off at high speed.

Surrey Police Officers later re-located the vehicle on Woking Road, before Chand lost control of the car on Blanchard’s Hill – obliterating a wooden fence and hitting a wall.

Despite the crash, Chand still attempted to escape – jumping over garden fences and discarding a sock and bloodstained glove, before being detained by police.

Chand, from Romford, London, was arrested for multiple offences; including theft of a motor vehicle, dangerous driving, criminal damage, and driving whilst unfit.

He was later charged with aggravated vehicle taking, driving without insurance, and failing to provide a specimen for analysis following a collision.

Appearing at Guildford Magistrates Court on Wednesday, 28 June, he pleaded guilty to all offences and was sentenced on Friday, October 27 at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

Investigating officer PC Tom Hinch of Surrey Police said: “Chand’s action could have caused serious injury to himself or someone else.

"This is an example of great proactive work by our frontline officers. Keyless vehicle thefts are a growing trend however we will continue to deal robustly with these offences and target offenders in our area.”

He will serve 10 months imprisonment; six months for possession of a bladed article, and four months for aggravated vehicle taking without consent.

He was also disqualified from driving for 19 months and 19 days, and had endorsements imposed on his driving licence for no insurance and failing to provide a specimen.

A victim surcharge of £187 was also imposed.
